At the end of the Trayvon Martin controversy, I remarked in an online thread that Zimmerman had achieved the American Dream: he shot and killed somebody and got away with it. I got death threats for saying it.

There's something in your life that you have been neglecting -- you are worried that it may be too late to make things good. The little horse reassures you that there may be time to fix things. What do horses mean to you, do they intimidate you or do you like them?
commented on Joe the Plumber Returns With: Guns Are More Important Than the Dead UCSB Kids
The "well-regulated militia" argument has been around for years. YEARS. I first read it in a book by Paul Fussell, the military historian. Gun owners should be obliged to register, then ATTEND, monthly militia training sessions: seminars on gun safety, close-order drilling, etc. Like ROTC, or like the National Guard, but one weekend a month to devote to the idea of a "well-regulated militia". Then they can have their guns. Not before. I have always liked this idea.
